CRESTVIEW — The Crestview Pregnancy Center is raising funds and collecting items for the 6th Annual Pregnancy Center 5K/10K Run.
The April 5 event, scheduled for 8:30 a.m., includes a silent auction and door prizes, and is one of the non-profit organization's main fundraisers, center director Sue Carrigan said.
"Last year, we asked race participants to bring a box of diapers in for an additional raffle ticket to boost the inventory for the center," and that opportunity will continue this year, race coordinator Holly Fitzwater said.
Registered participants who bring one or more bags of diapers are eligible for the chance to win gift cards and gift certificates.
Silent auction items include area cruise packages and a free round of golf at Foxwood Country Club.
Several area churches, businesses and residents support the North Pearl Street center, which offers free pregnancy tests along with unplanned pregnancy and post-abortion counseling.
Volunteers offer referrals for area obstetrics, gynecology specialists and adoption services and the chance to earn donated supplies like a crib.
